    That's an impossible question to answer. Fish typically move to the middle of the water (lake or pond) and become less active in the warmest parts of the day. You have to know what kind of fish your are fishing for to know when they'll start to bite--mainly because you need to have the right type of bait, lure, etc. to catch the fish. So if you're fishing for bass, which is the most common thing to go fishing for in the northeast, you go when the water temperature is going down, along with the sun. A lot like us, fish tend to move less in the heat.

    Fishing reports, experience, what fish people are catching around you, jumping fish. You won't know but, you can still infer on what fish are feeding.
